Toronto to New York air battle

Air Canada is to launch triple-daily, non-stop flights between Toronto Pearson and New York JFK beginning 3 May 2012 and increase to hourly its flights to LaGuardia Airport.  It will be the only carrier that operates to all three major New York City area airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.  Air Canada has been flying between the two cities for 71 years.

In a dig at Porter Airlines, who operate from Toronto City Airport to Newark, Air Canada points out it is the only Canadian airline offering Business Class service between the two cities. 

Beginning 1 May Air Canada will add an additional daily return flight between Toronto and LaGuardia, providing an hourly service each business day.

The new Toronto – JFK flights will be operated by Air Canada Express using a 50-seat CRJ regional jet.  The JFK service will have early morning, afternoon and evening arrivals and departures.  With the new schedule Air Canada will operate a total of up to 38 return flights a day this summer to the New York metropolitan area from Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver. www.aircanada.ca
